June 16, 2010
by: Randy Shannon
Greetings to all classic car owners!
We start our newsletter with appreciation to Robert Mahnke and all the members of the Houston Buick Club for exhibiting and participating in our show last Saturday night by invitation.
Many super fine Buicks were on display under the lights at Niftee 50ees and our thanks for their support!

As an added attraction, it was wonderful to see Glenn Lenderman of Lufkin-Hudson, TX for attending last weekend with the "Hudson Hillbilly" Chevy Truck!
As Glenn arrived, the parking lot attendance immediately swarmed this unique truck that was truly a treat and very creative in theme!
We will have photos posted soon of last weekend's event as Molly just arrived back in town after being absent for the last two weeks.
Keep checking our photobucket site for photos.
We have been contacted by a future classic car owner looking for a 1951 Ford to build.
Doesn't matter if it is a coupe, sedan. convertible or 4 door.
If you know of one For Sale please contact Niftee 50ees so we may pass along the information.
This car will be a builder project.
This weekend will another "Double Header Weekend" for Niftee 50ees !
Our Saturday night event is on schedule for our normal Saturday night at Kroger's.
Sunday, June 20, ALL Classic Cars are invited to attend our 5 Year reunion at the 59' Diner (Willowbrook) located at FM1960 and FM249.
It's the "Daddy O' Fun Run" for breakfast for all the COOL Daddy O's!
We hope to see many of those that attended our event some 5 years ago !

News from other parts of the city..
by Camaro Kid
Well, now it's so hot, that road lizards can't stand it, yet alone us older then dirt folks
looking for some shade trees. I had a busy weekend making my rounds with both
cars, with one at the Classy Chassis show at Reliant Stadium and the FunFest Cruise
in Texas City. The FunFest Cruise at Nessler Park stirred up a good assortment of
cars and trucks with a Free entry and a chance to win three drawings of $100 dollars
provided by the Chamber. I'm not sure who won the first two drawings but it sure
the heck wasn't me and Pee Wee missed by one number. My good friend Brad
Senter, who always wins something, walked away with the last drawing of $100,
you will see Brads picture at the end of the album.

Brought the old vet home and put her to bed, and with a good night sleep I made my
way up to The Classy Chassis Concours d'Elegance, where my other baby had been
waiting for me to return since Friday, when I parked her on the floor of the stadium.
Even with the name "CONCOURS d'ELEGANCE" tells you right away, this has to be
the best of the best or the cream of the crop of autos! The autos come in from all all
corners of America and abroad. Some cars are one of a kind, and some of the others
get you saying "It's been a long time since I've seen one of those or wow, "never
have seen one of these in my life". In it's seventh year, this show has grown into
being well worthily of it's name "CLASSY CHASSIS CONCOUS d'ELEGANCE. I have
two links below, one is of all the pictures I took and the other is from KHOU TV 11 of
Houston. Y'all enjoy!

Rodney Kent Hudson
at the Grand Palace, 314 Pruitt Rd.

There will be a time for everyone to share their fondest memories and best “Rod” stories in celebration of life for the man we grew to know and love,
Dinner and a social will follow.
· Rod was involved with many organizations, charities, clubs, and committees; therefore, blessed with many great friends. The family requests that during the celebration of his life each group be identified as how they knew Rod by wearing the following, if able:
Car Friends: Wear a Rod Run T-shirt
Rodeo Friends: Wear your badge, or rodeo dress etc.
Parade Friends: Wear green
PaPa’s Friends: A PaPa’s T shirt or Hawaiian shirt
Pepperidge Farm Friends: Pepperidge Farm shirt
Rodney Kent Hudson, was born 2/24/47 in North Platte, he passed away peacefully in his Houston home 6/5/10 at the age of 63. Rod will be missed by many friends and family.
After high school in Hershey NE, Rod spent 4 yrs in the USMC. He arrived in TX “as soon as he could get here”. He worked 20+ yrs for Houston area Coors distributorships prior to purchasing a Pepperidge Farm distributorship where he went from being the “beer man” to the “cookie man”.
Rod was active in the community and served on many charitable committees. He was a HLS&R lifetime member for his 20+ years volunteering with the rodeo, a lifetime membership to the Montgomery County Rodeo, and he was a founding member and parade chairman for the 1960 St. Patrick’s Day Parade benefiting CCEMS.
Best known for his 1932 Ford, “Silver Bullet” and his 1949 Bathtub Nash, “Tubby”, “Rodstr” spent much time with his friends at car shows and rod runs. He was a member of the Undecided’s Car Club.
He is survived by his wife of 10 years Dianne of Spring,Tx, his brother Garnet and wife Barb Hudson of Hershey NE, his brother Bob and wife Merlee Hudson of Dickens NE, a sister Mary Tucker of AZ., and sister Denise Paul of Spring, TX., his step children Scott Dismukes of Cypress, Tx and Shelle Schomburg and husband Doug of Pearland, TX and his grandchildren Madison, Clay, Jack and Masyn.
Rod was preceded in death by his father Edwin Hudson, his mother Ruth Meyer Hudson and his brothers Edwin Hudson Jr. and Royce D. Hudson.
· Donations to the American Cancer Society in memory of Rod Hudson are greatly appreciated.
I spoke with Dianne earlier today and she wanted to me pass along some information. First, she wants everyone to know how fortunate and blessed she is to have so many dear friends. She welcomes your phone calls and if you would like to visit, give her a ring to make sure she is home. She will be off for a few weeks but has lots of things to keep her busy. Second, plans have been made to hold a celebration of life on Sunday, June 27, beginning at 2 pm at the Grand Palace. More details will be forthcoming. Third, she is pretty well stocked up on food for now – nothing is needed at this time! As we near June 27 and learn the schedules of Rod’s family from Nebraska and any other out-of-town guests, we will plan menus accordingly and get with those who would like to help cover the meals during that time. Dianne has promised that if she needs help with anything she will not hesitate to reach out to her many friends.

Have a safe and wonderful weekend!
